About the Manga

Author: Nagata Masami

Title: Love Catalogue

Summary: Hanamoto Mika is your typical 17 year-old high school girl. She’s a bit insecure and she longs to finally have a boyfriend. One day at a goukon she meets Takada, and falls in love at first sight. After a series of embarrassing moments, upon seeing him again at another goukon, she surprises herself by asking him out. Here begins a tale of a teenager’s first love…

Realistic Boyfriend/ Sweet Bishounen

Physical Attributes (24 out of 40):

Fashion Sense (6/10)

Face (6/10)

Body (7/10)

Strength (5/10)

Angst Factor (4/10)

Mysteriousness (2/10)

Loyalty (7/10)

Humor (5/10)

Good or Evil (8/10): Good

His Take on Love (8/10):
He’s guy-ish, and thus not quite so romantic, but he really cherishes Mika. He’s nice, faithful and loyal. He forgets a good night kiss from time to time.

Special Abilities/ Facts (Bonus Points): Plays the piano (3), wants to call her by her first name (cute!) (4), is refreshing in his everyday-ness and lack of angsty past (5), protects girlfriend from perverts (3), likes rock music (2).

Conclusion:
If I didn’t know better, I would think that this guy was loosely based on my boyfriend in the way he acts indifferently and then suddenly does something unexpectedly sweet! I also like that he too has insecurities and can be jealous and immature, that is so charming. But he is a serious (at times even mature), honest and tolerant guy who only has eyes for the girl he loves! I love the strong, clear lines of his body: he looks strong and tall! His face also looks quite manly but the manga-ka draws him rather averagely, so that aspect of him gets a bit downgraded. Furthermore, he’s personality is realistic, which means that he’s not angsty or mysterious at all! Despite him only being 75% Bishounen, he has somehow managed to gain my sympathy…maybe it’s because of his unfaltering love for that annoying and insecure thing which he calls girlfriend… he seems almost heroic!

This manga ran for 34 volumes between 1995 and 2007. It doesn’t look like this manga has been licensed into other languages, but it being scanlated by en•tro•py. But please support the author to the best of you ability!

About the Manga

Author: Ohmi Tomu

Title: Midnight Secretary

Summary: Kaya has her dream job; she’s a secretary to a reputable tableware company! She gets promoted to become the private secretary of the legendary Director Touma.

Bishounen Type: Playboy/ Anti-Romantic/ Ansgty Bastard

Physical Attributes (25 out of 40):

Fashion Sense (7/10)

Face (5/10)

Body (7/10)

Strength (6/10) Has not shown has he has any kind of super-strength. Am assuming of course that vampires are by nature stronger than humans, otherwise it would have been (5/10)

Personality (26 out of 40):

Angst Factor (7/10)

Mysteriousness (7/10)

Loyalty (8/10)

Humor (4/10)

Good or Evil (7/10): Good

His Take on Love (6/10): He really can’t help his growing feelings towards the one he loves but he’s doing everything he can to fight it. He is perverted and because women are “meals” for him he sleeps with them to improve the taste of the blood.

Special Abilities/ Facts (Bonus Points): He’s a vampire! Automatic bonus points (5), however you can never go on daytime dates with him (-2). He’s a successful businessman (5), good in bed (4), has the cutest bishoujo in the manga-verse (4).

Conclusion: This is totally the kind of guy that makes fangirls “kyaaa”: he is tall, dark and broody… what more can we ask for? But there is no way (or at least is would take forever for) this misogynist would trust, let alone fall for a human… so fat chance of me making it to the position of girlfriend. And if I was able to prove myself and gain his trust I probably couldn’t handle his antics and constant cheating. He gets downgraded for having that hair on his face and for being an über-arrogant, slut who because of his pride is unable to make his beloved happy. But the rest of him is very pretty, and if he can make people feel ecstasy when he bites them, then where do I sign up to become food? 😛 So by having the classic qualities which move the hearts of any fangirls he is 80% Bishounen, beating Dark by 1 percent.
